“Love For Allah,” by Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad, intimately explores the importance of having love for Allah (Glorious and Exalted is He), and the effects that love can have on the heart of a believer. Most importantly however, the book delves into how a person can develop a sincere love for their Creator. The remaining chapters of the book explore the signs that mark those believers that truly love Allah and the benefits that are reaped for that love. These themes are explored through the stories of the companions of the Prophet (May Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) and the successive generations of righteous believers. Interspersed throughout the text are English translations of Arabic and Urdu poems, which highlight the concepts discussed.
